to cantor today. >> we'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to the earn success and achieve their dreams. >> what a cover-up. your party ought to be ashamed of itself. you spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting or young people. now you're out pretending that you care about opportunity in america. it's an absurdity eric cantor -- >> the speech by eric cantor was a very good speech. >> if it wasn't given by him maybe. >> eric cantor is a good guy. he's got a family. he cares about this country. he's a patriot. he cares about making government work better and this is a reform speech. i thought -- because it was practical. i think for republicans they can't be the party of bob dole caring only about the deficit. they have to care about practical --
, every child to be educated. for that reason we have organized a fund. >> reporter: what are you trying to accomplish by the fund? >> our aim and our dream is to educate children. and especially girls. because we know when you educate a girl, you educate the whole family. you educate a generation. you educate all other coming children. >> reporter: the challenge is enormous. today there are 32 million girls around the world who are not in school. bob woodruff, abc news, new york. >> a really humbling inspiring story. she, her grace and intellect and passion and sense of purpose. >> such a young age. >> really that young. left side of her face is paralyzed. hoping it comes back to full function within 18 months or so. mentally, spiritually, the recovery is full. you can tell listening to her. it is remarkable. said it before on the show. the taliban tried to kill her only succeeded in making her immo immortal. >> she wanted to protect people that she wanted to protect. people in pakistan wanted to name a school after her. don't do it. you will become a target for the taliban. >> they did
were all going to act, no matter how we were involved in the project of educating our kids -- we were going to put our kids first. that sounds like obstruction, but when you are in the hard work of having to close schools, it gives you an ability to remind people of what the interest of is acting in whether it is our compact or whether it is here, particularly here, because of the detailed nature, it does give us a road map. and i think it holds together. employer verification, a path to citizenship, making sure we are not rejecting talented people from other countries that have a ph.d. is and a real contribution to make here, and so on all of these things, in a substantive way, hang together. but the politically hang together. over years of debates on immigration reform, it has been clear what the component pieces are that are necessary for a large deal. i can filibuster all day long, but i do think colorado, in some sense, it is unusual, maybe. we seem to -- the ski resorts of mentioned earlier -- a huge number of moving pieces. >> part of politics is put yourselves in the s
education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. our economy right now is headed in the right direction. and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of washington. >> this self-inflicted wound would include massive cuts to virtually every government program. from medicare and housing to head start and food aid for children. the president wants republicans to delay those cuts through a balanced approach that would force corporations and the wealthy to give up some of their special tax break. and pay their fair share. >> these modest reforms in our social insurance programs have to go hand in hand with tax reform. so the wealthiest individuals and corporations can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. there is no reason that the jobs of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy, not to
are things that the bureau wants to hold back, so that we don't inadvertently educate other would be hostage takers or terrorists. it's fair to say the camera did get in there. that allowed them to gather the intelligence they needed. and probably determine the exacts moment when it would be safest to detonate that diversionary device, breech the door, make the entry and so forth. it wasn't just a guess. i think it was well planned. there has been reports that the hrt, the hostage rescue team built a mock bunker based on how they knew about the layout to practice the rescue and so forth. i think that's probably what occurred. >> jimmy lee dykes, the suspect in this case, who is now dead, is a survivalist with anti-government sentiment. anti-government sentiment in this country is at an all time high. will we see more of this kind of thing? >> well, it's hard to say. unfortunately, situations like this sometimes result in copy cat events. people who are unstable, who are on the edge, look at a situation like this and think it's a good thing to do. hopefully, they will look at this and see thi
, but also high-tech jobs, jobs in medical fields and high specialization and higher education type jobs because it spreads the wealth throughout the country. buying their fuel, we have the largest resource base in the world in north america, all we have to do is be able to get at it. the reason it is happening is because it is happening on nonfederal government land. on the government land next door, nothing is happening. liz: california was basically dealt off of a goldrush. do you agree reduction could double every 18 months, does that sound right to you? >> the increase could double. it would be tough to push that to doubling but i will tell you this, last year on a private land, distinction between what the government is doing and the private land, increased oil in the united states with the highest it has been since the first oil well was drilled in 1859 in pennsylvania. same thing for natural gas. we are loaded with energy now, we don't have to worry about the scarcity argument anymore. will we let our people go to work, produce the jobs and produce the wealth and all the great th

of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together to eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> our first read team notes that while republicans want to solely talk about the budget the white house does not want to be bogged down on one issue that in the past cost hem political capital. quote, the obama white house wants to overled wa's political circuits to see what it can get through congress without letting congress define what issues get addressed. joining us now kelly o'donnell. our first read team noted the p talking about guns, immigration and today addressing the issue of the sequester. >> reporter: well, there is that sprint in the first year of his second term to try to get as much done as possible. and urgency on all these issues for different reasons. and when it comes to the sequester, the automatic budget cuts, kind of an odd term for what's meant to be aut
. the peace walk is really telling young people to choose education over guns, not to solve your problems with gun violence but with diplomacy and that's so important and with all of this gun violence happening around america, the stand your ground law, mr. roberts, is a law that in trayvon's situation makes no sense. how can you be the aggressor, how can you initiate the confrontation and then say, after i shoot a kid in the heart, i was just standing my ground? so this trayvon martin amendment to the stand your ground law, simply, you can't be aggressor and start the confrontation and then claim that you stood your ground. >> mr. crump, i want to talk to you about what took place in court this week. zimmerman and his side were trying to push more time before going to trial. explain what happened in court and then who was witness number eight? >> certainly. on february 5th, which would have been trayvon martin's 18th birthday, we had a scheduled court hearing to talk about different issues in the trial and that courtroom on that day, the spirit of trayvon martin was definitely in the cou
into education for yourself or your kids. take great advantage of certificate programs that are offered perhaps through your community college or through companies. microsoft, for example, offers a certificate program that trains people in how to use microsoft software and things like that. makes you more marketable in your field or if you want to change fields. that's something people should be aware of. community college is a great resource. >> if we're educating a child or paying for education, maybe get a ba in three years and not four. >> about 50 schools now have three year degree programs and you can have it do it yourself. if your kids take enough advance placement courses in high school, they can have enough to put toward their college requirements. i know several kids who actually could have gotten out in three years and took on double and even triple majors just so they could spend an extra year in school lchlt and make more of their education. but they could have gotten out in three years. and you can do that on your own. >> fantastic. janet said some of them. get a certificate, get
that will talk about issues that don't have to do with the budget. immigration, education, health care. cantor is joining a growing list of republicans who are trying to rebrand the party. >> we have not explained why we take the positions that we do. and i think that's one of the lessons learned from this past election. i think that where we have a lot of room to grow as a party, as conservatives is to explain again why we're for the kind of fiscal discipline that we're for. what is the reality and how are we going to help people? >> we had to show our ideas are better at fighting poverty. how our ideas are better at solving health care. how our ideas are better at solving the problems people are experiencing in their daily lives. >> we have to get the republican party back on track. we do that by winning the argument of ideas. >> let's bring in our tuesday gaggle. perry bacon jr., solinda lake and john feehery. john, i'll start with you. this is, i assume, you like hearing the words you are hearing from whether it's eric cantor, paul ryan or what we used there with bobby jindal. the question
, they're education initiatives, simplifying the tax code, health care reforms, and immigration reform. jacqui, these are all kind of popular issues that the right could take the lead on and gain traction with. but what do you think about eric cantor trying to come out to rebrand, especially, when he's been down this rebranding road before? >> yeah, we have seen this before from eric cantor. and you know, the fact that he is making this speech, to try to renew momentum on some of these issues, i mean, is something that he's been wanting to do since december, when the republicans rr pretty divided. but the devil's in the details with these kind of speeches. when you're talking about tax reform, i think he told "national review" that he wants to look at a family-friendly tax reform. well, when you have a budget chairman preparing a budget that's going to balance in ten years, it's going to be really hard to keep things like the child tax credit. so we're going to see how this pans out, because you can't talk about a budget plabalancing in years without cutting some tax cuts that are real

to come in or two learn how to swim out to the ship and the bottom line is you look at education, this economy has done a tremendous toll on low wage jobs, low skilled jobs and as blacks traditionally have technically less education than whites have. >> you're talking about swimming out of the pool but if there are no jobs available it's high for black americans, so how do you swim out of the pool? what exactly do you do? >> look there's only three things we can do, one, if your skills are not, no longer acceptable within your area you can move to another area where your skills are acceptable, two, go back to school and increase your education and get more skills or three, you can learn how to create your own company where you can create a demand for your own and be that entrepreneur and try to capitalize off of the demand within your community. all of these things again as a financial, i'm not trying to say the president can't do more as an advocate, it's my job to push him to go further. we have to say if we continue to allow on one man barack obama to do things, there's certai
